The Virtual Surrey School Games

Virtual Surrey School Games logoFor the remainder of the 2020 summer term young people - whether they are at school or at home - can get involved in the Virtual Surrey School Games programme.

We're sending schools weekly, themed activities which can be forwarded to parents or accessed directly via this page. The activities can be completed indoors or outdoors using minimal equipment; alternatives can be used if you don’t have exactly what’s needed.

Taking part is the important thing, but we encourage parents to share their child's results with us (teachers can use our bulk upload facility to record up to 15 results at a time) which go towards a school leader board.

What the Virtual Games involve

There are two parts to the Virtual Surrey School Games:

  1. The first is the weekly Activity which comes with five levels of progression depending on age and / or ability of the child. You can get an idea of what the planned Activities are below. Results from the activities - which can be done at home or school - can be submitted by a parent or teacher.

  2. The second is a ‘Level Up’ ideas challenge where parents of young people are invited to share their ideas with us on social media – safely - using the hashtag #VirtualSSG2020 and win a £20 Amazon voucher.

To participate in the Virtual Surrey School Games, please read the terms and conditions of entry and privacy policy at the foot of this page.

Incentives

Young people create their own version of the same Activity as a 'Level Up' idea using the STEPS principle (details on Activity card).

Suggestions should show creativity and ideally incorporate the School Games Values (details on Activity card)

You only need to share ideas if you want a chance to win the weekly prize, but we would love to hear them.

We encourage parents to share them with us on social media using our Schools' handles (@ActiveSchoolsAS on Twitter and Facebook or @ActiveSurrey on Instagram) with the hashtag #VirtualSSG2020.

The best ideas that have tagged Active Surrey and used #VirtualSSG2020 will be shared by us.

Each week, the most creative Level Up idea will win a £20 Amazon voucher.

Overall Primary & Secondary Activity leaderboards - cumulative results to date UPDATED 13 JULY

Cumulative results for weeks 1-5 show the number of entries from each school, take a look to see if pupils from your school have taken part - check out the latest overall leaderboards for Primary and Secondary schools.

While the top five on the Primary leaderboard have not seen much change with Frimley C of E Junior School still remaining in top position with a clear 99 points ahead of St Dunstan’s Catholic Primary School. Ravenscote’s entry pushed St Polycarp’s Catholic Primary School out of the overall top 5, but there is only 1 point difference between 5th & 6th place! Keep it up, it is all to play for!

Primary Positions 7-12 are very tight, someone’s got to pull it out the bag and take the lead next week!

On the Secondary leaderboard, Epsom & Ewell High School have just pulled away leaving St Bede’s School in 2nd place. Thanks to Thomas Knyvett strong start they have secured 3rd place overall just ahead of The Winston Churchill School. 1 point is the difference between 5th and 6th place – it is all to play for!
Hoe Valley Secondary School pushed through and have taken the lead ahead of the Magna Carta School this week, but could they come back with a vengeance next week?!

Get more pupils involved in the Virtual Surrey School Games to see your school climb the Leader board. Parents or teachers can submit results. Who will take the Surrey Champion crown at the end of term?

Week 5 saw St Dunstan’s Catholic Primary School finally push through and knock Frimley C of E Junior School off the top spot as well as also submitted the highest entries for a single week the Primary Leaderboard has seen so far. Meanwhile Ravenscote Community Junior School who have had a constant handful over the weeks have had a strong week 5 and secured 3rd place.

New challenge for the next academic year (Jingles all the way...)

We're already planning the Autumn term programme and further details will be released in due course.

The Surrey School Games has always been known for bringing schools and young people together to compete and have fun. However, with a virtual programme in place we still want to create a sense of togetherness and an atmosphere.

To help we invite creative pupils to get involved in our Jingle/Chant competition to see which school, group or individual can make a Virtual Surrey School Games tune/chorus that can be used in celebrations or as encouragement when young people are taking part in the #VirtualSSG2020.

Entries close on 7 August and must be emailed to active.schools@surreycc.gov.uk For more information and requirements please see our Jingle/Chant briefing sheet.
